All about Emergency Appointments - Detailed Guide

Updated: Jul 13, 2023

Every day the embassy releases appointments for the next day. when you book an Emergency appointment, you will get a temporary passport the next day.

(You don't have to go back to pick up your passport the very next day. You can go later that week. In addition, at your appointment you can sign a consent form with a specific name to allow a friend or family member pick up your passport for you.)

This passport will be valid for six months.

Emergency slots are released daily from 3 to 4 PM.

It may not be at 3:01. Keep refreshing and stay by your computer until 4 PM.

Refresh every 30 seconds minute until you see slots.

How do you refresh the page without exiting the calendar 📆?

Keep your mouse on the arrows on the top right of the calendar. Go back and forth until slots pop up.


The new emergency passport appointments will only get you a 6 month emergency passport. The appointment cannot be used to get a CRBA or 1 year passport to be exchanged through the dropbox or mail. You can book a standard CRBA appointment and get your full 5 year passport then.
